 My cup runneth over!  In the most perfect weather I was able to find the
'Big Four' for Steve Clarke in 2 hours!!

On Lake Borrie,  on Paradise Road ,were the Freckled Duck standing on the
rocks, not far away were two Glossy Ibis.  Further around  in one of the
ponds to the left of Borrie were three more Glossy Ibis.  Around to Borrie
South, exactly where Tim Dolby  saw the Northern Shoveler on Friday
afternoon , there it was again, very easy to see.  There was no wind, the
water  still  and the light was perfect.  We continued around Borrie and
exited onto Beach Rd and then down to the Spit.   After a short walk the
Orange-Bellied Parrots showed themselves.  One flutter in front of us
clearly showing its orange belly.  Not a bad day!
